    Effective emotion regulation strategies are important in everyday life and have important role in professions that are focused on working with people. In primary school teachers and social pedagogues are encountered with situations where they need to recognize and regulate their emotion responds. Pedagogy work is never neutral since emotions are its immanent part and include also emotion regulation. The master thesis discuses emotion regulation of teachers and social pedagogues in their pedagogical work in primary school. Theoretical part first focuses on emotions and questions of rationality and the role of emotions in everyday and professional life, followed by introduction of different emotion theories with common belief that emotion responses can be modulated (we can change, decrease or increase emotion responds) and introduction of Gross and Thompson model of Emotion Regulation. Empirical part is based on qualitative research, which included nine semi-structured interviews with six primary school teachers and three social pedagogues working in primary school. Aim of the research was to find which Emotion Regulation Strategies are used by teachers and social pedagogues, which emotions are regulated, what is the goal of emotion regulation and which strategies do they find the most effective. Research showed that teachers and social pedagogues use different emotion regulation strategies which they developed through experiences or additional trainings. Goals of emotion regulation are effectiveness, well-being, being focused on students, relations, motivation and discipline. Between groups there are some differences in the ways they use different strategies, which can be result of different age groups, of the students they are working with, and different working methods and forms. Anger is the emotion that is regulated most frequently.Teachers and social pedagogues see pedagogical work as emotional work and emotion regulation as its integral part.
